The fifth-grade students are busy throughout the year improving their skills in reading, writing, and math as they prepare for the NYS Testing. Our goal is to help each student become successful in meeting the state standards in Math, Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies.
In math, the emphasis is on problem-solving skills and completing word problems. The curriculum set by the district has been aligned to the common core standards using the Envision Math Series.
In language arts, the emphasis is on improving reading, writing, and listening skills through the use of our new reading series, Reading Street and trade books, along with other resources.
In science, the curriculum centers around the study of controlled studies, physical and chemical relationships, life science and the human body systems.
The social studies curriculum is the study of political systems, government, culture, history, and geography of the western hemisphere. The content includes the study of Canada, Latin America, and the United States.
